Controversy at the Rellys for second consecutive year

For the second year in a row, controversy reigns at the Relly Awards, as Regis Philbin again is shut out in the "Best Regis" category - again at the hands of a "Saturday Night Live" veteran. This year, comedian and actor Jimmy Fallon took home the prestigious "Best Regis" Golden Stool.
Philbin accepted the award on behalf of the absent Fallon, but shocked the Relly audience by reading a purported letter from Fallon, essentially passing the award to Philbin. The document later was revealed to be a fraud. After the broadcast, Philbin asserted that "Next year will be the year that regis is 'Best Regis'!"
In another shocking twist, porcine princess Miss Piggy eked out a win in the "Best Non-Human Guest" category, triumphing over such competition as Mariah Carey's dog Jack, "Star Wars" superstar Chewbacca and Barney the Purple Dinosaur. Singing superstar Carey attempted to call in during the Relly taping to express her disappointment over Jack being passed over in favor of the popular pig.
Another unhappy nominee was talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, who lost the "Best New Co-Host" Relly to "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest. Kimmel is rumored to be readying a rebuttal for air on tonight's "Jimmy Kimmel Live".
Philbin and fellow host Kelly Ripa were the biggest winners on Friday, and the only nominees to walk away with multiple Golden Stools (two and three, respectively), while cast of "Everybody Loves Raymond" won in the "Funniest Guest" category. "American Idol's" Bo Bice accepted his "Best Reality Guest" award live via satellite from Nashville, and Backstreet Boys Kevin Richardson, AJ McLean and Howie Dorough checked in from Los Angeles to receive their Relly for "Favorite Music Guest".

BET Awards (54,972) by B from USA

The BET Awards are not important. None of these awards really matter anymore. Even the Grammy Awards have lost their credibility by awarding artist with little or no talent and playing favorites.

Lucia (54,971) by Lee from USA

She won the best smile award. Mariah has done more in the last 7 years than Janet and Whitney. She resurrected her acting career and built her (and Nick's) empire up. If that is not much, then I don't know what is. The woman put two platinum-selling singles without help from a label. You said that BET would not associate with her when things are g... read more
